The DC Council testifying in support of the Advance Practice Registered Nurse Signature Authority Amendment Act of 2017 (B22-0333) was held in September 2017.

There were a total of eight witnesses, seven of which were NPs; the eighth witness was a CNM. Justin Palmer, from the DC Hospital Association testified in favor of the Amendment. There were no witnesses in opposition of the Amendment.

The Amendment was well-received by Chairmen Gray and we hope for a positive resolution and passage of the Amendment. In the photo you can see Wes Cook (2nd from R) NPADC member and Laura Worby (4th from R), Legislative Coordinator, NPADC.
